The OnePlus 6T is one of the most highly-anticipated tech devices of the year. Now that the iPhone Xs Max, Google Pixel 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have already arrived, a lot of people are excited about the upcoming smartphone, which is expected to have premium features and specifications.

Lack of headphone jack in OnePlus 6T?

Just like the iPhone Xs Max, the 6T model will not receive a headphone jack according to Gizmodo. This makes OnePlus the latest in a growing list of smartphone makers that are shunning the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.

USB-C headphone slot as a replacement?

It looks like the replacement for the headphone jack will be a USB-C slot. The headphones will hopefully have a stronger body so that it will not be easily destroyed.

Other upgrades and new features

The next OnePlus phone is going to ride on the waterdrop notch trend that is invading the smartphone world, according to Hindustan Times. This will mean a major overhaul in the front notch that was popularized by the direct predecessor of the iPhone Xs Max.

The stunning triple camera setup will also be another reason to purchase the OnePlus 6T. With the addition of the third lens, users will get more 3D depth to their photos.

The sequel to OnePlus 6 is said to have an official release on Wednesday, October 17. This will mean that it would have a launch just days before the expected release of the Google Pixel 3.

Do you think the removal of the headphone jack on the OnePlus 6T is a good decision? How do you think will the USB-C earphone improve the audio experience on the upcoming smartphone? Will it ultimately be better than the iPhone Xs Max, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Google Pixel 3? Put your comments and thoughts in text form in the comments section.
